Father and Son in Heaps of Trouble After Pursuit, COLITA, August 5, 2020 - At approximately 6:45 pm on August 5, 2020, Officers with the Corrigan Police Department spotted a silver 2008 Nissan Altima traveling at a high rate of speed south on US-59 through Corrigan. The car matched the description of a hit and run accident in Diboll. Corrigan Police attempted to stop the vehicle and the driver, Clovis Cortez Maxwell, 37, of Memphis, Tennessee, opted to evade. The pursuit continued down 59 and reportedly got up to 130 miles per hour. Officers Tracy Brown, Albert Richard, and Anthony Yaw (all with Corrigan PD) pursued Maxwell. Maxwell turned onto FM-350 in Moscow and continued for miles until they made a right turn onto Ray Marsh Road (unpaved). Maxwell continued down Ray Marsh road, entered a curve too fast and rolled his vehicle. Maxwell's vehicle came to rest upright on the left side of the road in a drainage area. Officers surrounded the vehicle as Maxwell and his passenger (Clovis Maxwell's son), Quindarius, 20, also of Memphis, both exited the vehicle under their own power. Both men were checked by EMS personnel and both were physically okay and refused treatment. During a vehicle inventory, officers (assisted by Polk County narcotics detectives) turned up a plethora of prescription pills, bags of marijuana, and over $22,000 in cash. Both men were placed under arrest and are likely facing a list of charges. Maxwell's vehicle was recovered by Riley Wrecker Service out of Corrigan.
